After spending a miserable summer dealing with back pain, cortizone shots which causes major leg muscle spasms, and resisting the idea of surgery, D decided, once he was laid off for the winter, to go ahead and schedule his surgery.
After leaving the kids with a sitter, we drove to the Carmel office and D was whisked away. I spent five wonderful solitary hours, working on Forbidden Love, and talking books with another woman in the waiting room.
I had a serious 'uh-oh' moment, when a priest came around to offer prayers or comfort and I was in the middle of writing a rather steamy scene between Keri and Kyle! I simply closed my notebook, smiled at him, and told him I was fine, my hubby was in Good Hands with God and the surgeon, Dr. Bagin.
After D was in recovery, he was amazed by the non-pain in his back, and walked out of the hospital, 6 hours after entering, with a band-aid covering the wound! He said Dr. B had told him, "I don't ever want to go that deep in your back ever again!"
I think we spent Thanksgiving and the weekend in Vincennes, with D's family, setting up his mom's decorations for her on Sunday.
Getting ready for my final signing of the year, the Holiday Vendor Fair, tomorrow from 8-2pm at one of our former elementary schools.
Sang two songs last night, Zombie and I Got The Boy, but camera batteries quit before the first verse of Zombie was over. So will sing it again in two weeks.
Saturday's Karaoke Songs:
Since I have to be at church by 7:30 on Sunday, I'll only sing two songs tomorrow, three if the rotation's light:
It's Not Over-Daughtry
It's Only Love-B, Adams/T. Turner (if there's time)
Have a great weekend!
